Amazon paid corporation tax of €11m on its profits, which left a post-tax profit of €27.6m.
As for staff, at the end of last December, the company employed 1,371, which was up from the 1,189 on its books a year earlier. Staff costs for the year increased €118m to €151m.
Pay for five directors serving during the year increased by 31% to €1.60m, which included share-based awards of €1m.
Another Amazon entity in the Republic, Cork-based Amazon CS Ireland Ltd (ACSI), that operates a customer service centre at Cork Airport Business Park, saw its sales increase 11% to €119m.
That operation employed just over 1,000 at the end of last December. It recorded a pre-tax loss of €3.6m after incurring administrative expenses totalling €122.6m.
